Americana/folk rock band The Contenders follow up their 2014 release ‘Meet The Contenders’ with their first full length studio album ‘Laughing with the Reckless’ on Rock Ridge Music on November 3, 2017.

Lady luck had introduced singer songwriter Jay Nash and singer and drummer Josh Day in Los Angeles over a decade ago when they bonded over a shared love of The Band, roots music and a sacred admiration for the great American songbook. As their paths continued to cross over the years, collaboration, they concluded, would be inevitable.

Together as The Contenders, the pair make the sort of music found in the intricate and varied tapestry that is real Americana – full of grit, with a steady heartbeat and a hint of honky-tonk – writing songs that speak of wanderers and highways, lovers and losers, good times and missed chances, all of it with a ferocity born of hard work and honed skill.

Country Weekly have said “The duo’s sound paints a picture of open stretches of road as well as lazy days at home – sonic comfort food constructed on a bed of groove and storytelling.”

The Contenders start a 10-date tour of Europe in October before heading back to the States in November for a nine-show run in support of the album release with stops in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Spring Lake (MI), Columbus and Nashville.

The Contenders’ raucous foundation of rhythm and harmony is finding unmistakable resonance with audiences.  ‘Laughing with the Reckless’ is very much about the perseverance of hope in dark times along with the powerful connection of music, old friends and loved ones, all delivered with a wry and wistful narrative.

So, sit back, let us pour you a glass of something good and meet The Contenders.

And to start off the evening, Hugh Masterson will play an opening set. This is going to be a great one, folks! Don’t miss out!
